[Bann Valley] Drumagarner


Looking through my partial trees from marriages on site I have a John
Torrens who married a Martha Hill on 15 March 1837.

This was never connected but we think it's likely to connect back to
Samuel Torrens of the Culnanmen lines. 

Linde Lunny and I did a lot of work on this line and it should be pretty
accurate. It's all on the www site and you may be able to add to it.

This was all done (15 years) or more ago so I forget exactly what's there!
So ask if you need help.

Using the Search Whole of genealogy site for "Martha Hill" (use the quotes
as well) gives many hits. 

Good luck - and thanks for waking the list up. You should also join the
Bann Valley list as I'm copying this there.
